    If your friend would be willing to trade his labor for money, what would that look like? Asking for a friend...

    Dust that off, roll up some leaf in a binder, stuff it in there, rotate, then wrap. Looks like it will work just fine. Perfectos are a bit tricky to wrap due to the changing shape of the cigar but once you learn to master that everything else is a breeze.

    Friend said he is willing to make another, he would rather have Cigars than payment, home rolls would work he says

    Just FMI, what are the yields of the leaf bundles after rolling compared to just buying cigars? Is it a cheap way to smoke?

    Obviously you guys are not home rolling because you're too cheap to buy cigars (I don't think?), but I was wondering about the economics.

    Thanks!
